WORST EVER SECURITY FLAW FOUND IN DIEBOLD TS VOTING MACHINE
“This may be the worst security flaw we have seen in touch screen voting
machines,” says Open Voting Foundation president, Alan Dechert. Upon
examining the inner workings of one of the most popular paperless touch
screen voting machines used in public elections in the United States, it
has been determined that with the flip of a single switch inside, the machine
can behave in a completely different manner compared to the tested and

In an exclusive interview by BBV investigator Jim March with Dr.
Douglas Jones, University of Iowa associate professor and a former voting
machine examiner for the state of Iowa, it was learned that one of the most
widely-used voting machines over the last 15 years may suffer from design

In 2006, Voting Fraud is the Keystone Issue
"The ballot is the heart of democracy. If one party “owns” the ballot box,
it owns the government, for that party is no longer answerable to the will
of the people; it rules without the “consent of the governed.” Thus it is
no wonder that the Bush regime and the GOP want to keep this issue off the
public agenda. We can’t allow them to succeed. It’s as simple as that."

GAO report upholds Ohio vote fraud claims
"This powerful and probing report takes a hard look at the election of 2004 and
supports the contention that the election was stolen. The report has received
almost no coverage in the national media.
...Some of the GAO’s findings are:
1. Some electronic voting machines did not
encrypt cast ballots or system audit logs, and it was possible to alter both
without being detected. In short, the machines; provided a way to manipulate
the outcome of the election. In Ohio, more than 800,000 votes were cast on
electronic voting machines, some registered seven times Bush’s official margin
2: the report further stated that: it was possible to alter the files that
define how a ballot looks and works, so that the votes for one candidate could
be recorded for a different candidate. Very many sworn statements and affidavits
claim that did happen in Ohio in 2004.
...The GAO additionally found that access to the voting network was very easy to
compromise because not all electronic voting systems had supervisory functions
protected by password. That meant access to one machine gave access to the

New Data Shows Widespread Vote Manipulations in 2004
"More importantly national exit polls showed Kerry winning in 2004. However,
It was only in precincts where there were no paper trails on the voting

According to Dr. Steve Freeman, a statistician at the University of
Pennsylvania, the odds are 250 million to one that the exit polls were wrong
by chance. In fact, where the exit polls disagreed with the computerized
outcomes the results always favored Bush - another statistical impossibility. . "

2004 VOTE FRAUD FACTS SURFACE
Reporter Who Told Story of 2004 Vote Thievery Hushed by Mainstream Media
So what did Robert C. Koehler write that was considered so controversial by the
Let’s simply ask why the lines were so long and the voting machines so few in
Columbus and Cleveland and inner-city and college precincts across the
country, especially in the swing states, causing an estimated one-third of
the voters in these precincts to drop out of line without casting a ballot.
This, mind you, is just for starters. We might also ask why so many
Ph.D.-level mathematicians and computer programmers and other numbers-savvy
scientists are saying that the numbers don't make sense. . . . Indeed, the
movement to investigate the 2004 election is led by such people, because the
numbers are screaming at them that something is wrong.
And we might, no, we must, ask with more seriousness than the [mainstream]
media have asked about those exit polls, which in years past were
extraordinarily accurate but last November went haywire, predicting Kerry
[winning] by roughly the margin by which he ultimately lost to Bush. This
swing is out of the realm of random chance, forcing chagrined pollsters to
hypothesize a shy Republican factor as the explanation; and the media have
bought this evidence- free absurdity because it spares them the need to think
about the F-word: fraud.
Link to original article at the author's web site:
"The silent scream of numbers: The 2004 election was stolen -
will someone please tell the media?"
Introduction: Did George W. Bush steal America's 2004 election?
"In the months after the election, dozens of polling experts and statisticians
have scrutinized every corner of the public exit polling data as it stacks up
against the official vote counts. The major pollsters and their national media
clients still refuse to release the raw data. The consensus, as shown here,
is that the reversal of Kerry's fortunes late on election night was in essence
a statistical impossibility, with the odds at roughly 1 in 950,000. According
to these experts, John Kerry should have been inaugurated in January, 2005.
... Ironically, just prior to the 2004 US election, similar exit polls led
to the reversal of a presidential election in Ukraine, where mass demonstrations
forced a re-vote. The challenger's "defeat" in the first voting ran so clearly
counter to the exit polls that a second vote was forced, which he won.
The Bush administration supported the revote in the Ukraine. But there was
no parallel reversal here."
State likely to overlook Diebold flaws. Officials expected to OK voting system
despite problems on tests.
In less than a week, state officials are poised to approve a new Diebold
electronic-voting system that several large counties, including Alameda, want
to use. But the system showed problems in security, protection of voter
privacy and printing of a paper trail during testing this spring.

"Investigators say the box was just one example of a sloppy system of

Jim Lampley The Biggest Story of Our Lives
"We know that professionally conceived samples simply do not yield
results which vary six, eight, ten points from eventual data returns,
that's why there are identifiable margins for error. We know that margins
for error are valid, and that results have fallen within the error range
for every Presidential election for the past fifty years prior to last fall.
NEVER have exit polls varied by beyond-error margins in a single state, not
since 1948 when this kind of polling began. In this past election it
happened in ten states, all of them swing states, all of them in Bush's
favor. Coincidence? Of course not."
The New Diebold Printers
"Also a problem with this new system
is the fact that all records are printed, in the order that they were cast,
on a single roll of paper. If anyone wanted to match ballots to voters who
cast those ballots this system simplifies that task. The right to the
secrecy of the vote is under attack when these machines are used."

- There is a substantial discrepancy well outside the margin of error and
outcome determinative between the national exit poll and the popular vote count.
- The possible causes of the discrepancy would be random error, a skewed exit poll,
or breakdown in the fairness of the voting process and accuracy of the vote count.
- Analysis shows that the discrepancy cannot reasonably be accounted for by
chance or random error.
- Evidence does not support hypotheses that the discrepancy was produced by
problems with the exit poll.
- Widespread breakdown in the fairness of the voting process and accuracy of
the vote count are the most likely explanations for the discrepancy.
- In an accurate count of a free and fair election, the strong likelihood is
that Kerry would have been the winner of the popular vote.

an unsuccessful Democratic Supreme Court candidate. The calculations focus
on standardized county-wide ratios between bottom-of-the-ticket tallies won
by Judge Connally versus those won by Kerry in heavily Republican, rural
counties. According to a wide range of experts, there appears to be a
systematic removal of Kerry votes by hackers who overlooked the Connally
votes, which now clearly implies something went wrong. "It's simply not
credible that a vastly underfunded African-American female candidate at

they don't follow their way and believe in "their" god? that this intolerance suddenly
"justifies" torture, murder and genocide for dissension of thought? whatever happened to
live and let live?? isn't THAT what Christ would want?
do you think that any true God would agree to the murders of thousands of innocent men,
women and children in Iraq? please tell me how can you in good conscience vote for
someone for president who has lied and deceived us into a war which has brought horrible
torture and mass murder for the sake of securing military war contracts for his
corporate friends? who has filled his war cabinet with members none of whom have served
in the military and consequently who show NO EMPATHY FOR HUMAN LIFE and are only looking
out to serve their special interests? (Colin Powell, the moderate, is the exception who
knew better than to get into this Iraq mess and for his experience and wisdom has been
ostracized!). to me, it is abundantly clear from this administration that the moderate
view is unacceptable and that bloodshed and murder is a "triviality" for their personal
political agendas. and to see these so-called "christians" approve of this nightmare of
murder and national destruction is beyond my comprehension. if this doesn't abhor your
christian sensibilities than i am at an utter loss to understand.
to be completely honest with you, i have never been so anti-religion in my life as i've
become watching what is happening in the world and right here in our country in the name
of religion. what i see is that the vast majority of the world's problems occur because
of religion leading to war, repression and intolerance. and i see a bleak future under
this administration with fascist repression under total religious hypocrisy. this is NOT
what the great religious leaders of the world have taught us!!!
and btw, my parents who were lifelong hard-core republicans voted for Kerry because
they, too, are extremely troubled and disturbed by the dangerous political precedents
against our democracy that this underhanded bush administration has brought us. my
parents have told me that they see the same symptoms of eroding freedom and growing
repression occurring here now that they suffered under the fascist and communist regimes
in Hungary. and that tells me a LOT.

the numbers from one cell into the other. ... Harris sat up a bit straighter,
smiled, and said, "We just edited an election, and it took us 90 seconds."
Broward machines count backward
"Early Thursday, as Broward County
elections officials wrapped up after a long day of canvassing votes, something
unusual caught their eye. Tallies should go up as more votes are counted.
Thats simple math. But in some races, the numbers had gone . . . down."

Peak Oil and the Extinction of Humanity
Probably the only worthwhile piece of spam I have ever received.
A corroborative article:
$80 Oil, Here We Come!!! "In 2004, China became the number two consumer
of oil and the number two importer of oil behind the US. With Chinese oil
imports up 30% from 2003 levels (despite today’s record prices), it is quite
clear that oil prices would have to achieve much higher levels before Chinese
This is serious folks.
When will this administration pull its head out of the oil wells??
Why is our nation run by crisis management?? When will people stop
gorging on SUVs??
A comment from a friend. I've heard that this incident is starting to get
mass media attention:
Were you listening to Ray Taliaferro [KGO radio 810 AM from 1-5 am]
this morning? Wow! He had some awfully fishy cases from Ohio. He
mentioned a precinct where Bush got 4258 votes and Kerry 260 votes (if I
can remember correctly). The lopsided nature is suspicious in itself, but
then we learn that there were only 638 voters who voted there on
Tuesday!!! It looks like you were right about those voting machines. A
caller called in to say he had a friend in Ohio who said that in the
primary election there were 4-6 voting booths or machines, but in the
election on Tuesday there were only two. Hence the long lines. At
another mostly democratic precinct all of the machines were broken until 8
Looks like Bush is going to get away with it again. I hope this will get
lots of press. It's really making me sick. This is just the tip of the
iceberg! Where were the international observers?
I can't believe this is happening.
Well, I just heard today that Diebold, the maker of
the abominable e-voting machines, is 60% owned by Saudi Arabia... Note to self:
Proof CNN is tampering with the election to cover the fraud
According to other posts there at the Democratic Underground, the exit
polling data feed was altered for all news organizations including
MSNBC-Ohio poll data.
Felony Against Democracy
"The hot story in the Blogosphere is that the 'erroneous' exit polls that
showed Kerry carrying Florida and Ohio (among other states) weren't
erroneous at all - it was the numbers produced by paperless voting machines
that were wrong, and Kerry actually won. As more and more analysis is done
of what may (or may not) be the most massive election fraud in the history
of the world, however, it's critical that we keep the largest issue at the
forefront at all time: Why are We The People allowing private, for-
profit corporations, answerable only to their officers and boards of
directors, and loyal only to agendas and politicians that will enhance
their profitability, to handle our votes?"
The burning question on my mind.
Election results (updated with new color corrected version):
Everyone I talk to is stunned and in disbelief. It just doesn't make sense
that bushCo got elected. Something stinks:
Black Box Voting
"Black Box Voting has taken the position that fraud took place in the 2004
election through electronic voting machines. We base this on hard evidence,
documents obtained in public records requests, inside information, and
other data indicative of manipulation of electronic voting systems.
What we do not know is the specific scope of the fraud.
We are working now to compile the proof, based not on soft evidence
-- red flags, exit polls -- but core documents obtained by Black Box Voting
in the most massive Freedom of Information action in history."
This is the top watchdog group on e-voting. They
have demonstrated how the machines can easily be hacked. Keep an eye on
